This is the main wall of the four Patricia Bowl crags. Most routes are two pitches, but some on the right side are done in one. Many of the best pitches are actually the second ones. One must usually climb a lesser quality first pitch (sometimes hard to distinguish) to access the awesome splitters found on the second.
It is about 50 yards right of the Far Left crag.

Start just to the left of Freedom Fighter. Climb past 3 bolts and climb slightly right into a crack/corner. Take this to a stance under a roof. Climb out the left side of the roof (or the right side, which is a bit easier to protect). Above the roof is the bolted anchor for Freedom Fighter. Clip it for pro and keep climbing up double cracks and a small corner to loose ledge (careful not to drop anything on your belayer)....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
